Well, I'm not entirely sure. Disabling this by making it Kbrltty25 has
no effect, as in brltty still starts. 

Making it S11brltty does not seem to start brltty any earlier either,

Ok, so maybe this is where that link is important then, say if the
system drops into single-user mode. however, is this always guaranteed, if
we at least get far enough to access the root fs? 
If the answer is "yes", perhaps I would still be able to correct my
system is something goes wrong, so it may be ok.

Hmm, did not experiment with that, although, rcconf probably does that.
